Analysis: Businesses Engage Employees to Respond to Humanitarian Crisis in Ukraine

By Alan Goforth

GlobalLogic, a digital product engineering company, closely monitored rising tensions in Ukraine, where it has 7,500 employees. Even so, it was not prepared for the extent of the crisis following the Russian invasion.

“No one expected the scale of what has happened,” said Andriy Kalinovsky, senior vice president. “We were able to establish emergency hotlines and evacuate people. We moved many employees from east to west and provided them and their families with accommodations in places such as Croatia where we do business. By doing this, the government can focus its resources on people who don’t have this help available.”
